million, and may i note that that was up from the $75.5 million he made a year earlier. so regardless of obama-care he is still making a ton of money. also let's keep in mind that the whole libertarian fiscal policy is oh let's make sure that the government leaves us alone and you can just depend on corporations and people to take care of one another. now, what do you think about that, michael hastings? i can't thing of anything that angers me more than that ridiculous naive notion. >> yeah, if the corporation is taking care of you it's a easy bargain. you pay us $40 and we'll give a checkup. if you don't want the government providing these services, and you don't want to take the responsibility, then you view the world in a free for all and i don't think it's very humane. and i think that's the shocking thing here. the fact that this guy came out and said this whole foods has a very crunchy granola brand to it and people shopping there would be shocked to learn of these views. >> ana: i want to talk to talk about people who seem to be crunchy granola but they're not. urban outfitters

of representatives. and the answer to that question is really in a painting by grace mcdonnell, a 6-year-old sandy hook victim whose dad gave the president a piece of her artwork >> obama: i think about grace. i think about the life that she lived. and the life that lay ahead of her. and most of all, i think about how when it comes to protecting the most vulnerable among us, we must act now. >> jennifer: for grace, this fight is worth waging. and for her this fight may even be worth losing in the short term anyway. because while the president might be able to squeak out an unsatisfying victory a small and ugly bill riddled with loopholes and signifying nothing, perhaps in this instance, the better course is to wage the big fight to stand strong over banning assault rifles. even when you know you're not going to get the votes in congress because it is a noble cause. because it is better to lose with grace than to win ugly. because every day the extremists froth about saddam hussein and king obama and impeachment over a rational ban on assault rifles. they make the case to most everyday americans th

unnecessary. because the truth is, as president obama noted yesterday the u.s. economy's actually poised for a good year if only congress can get out of the way. i kind of paraphrased that last part. now that we know we're not going to be minting a trillion dollar coin, we need something different. a bill that would repeal the debt ceiling altogether. it is an idea supported publicly by alan greenspan and times man of the year last year, ben bernanke. it is an idea that could prevent lawmakers from lurching our country from one crisis to the next just to ring out some short-term gain until another republican sits in the oval office. that's why it's probably an idea that this congress has no chance of making law. but joining me now is one of the sponsors of the bill to repeal the debt ceiling altogether, democratic congressman from vermont and a member of the committee on house oversight and government reform, representative peter welch. sir, thank you so much for joining us tonight. >> good to be with you. >> john: right on. let me ask you just for starters, why does the debt ceiling exi

mentioned for many. for many years obviously there were no women in the cabinet. but it's not good enough. i think the obama administration is saying we are noticing you are not putting women in, i think is important. >> amanda, why didn't we see the same kind of reaction particularly from the right, you know, when bush was approximatelypresident? i found it kind of striking yesterday on "meet the press"that, you know, mike murphy and hailee barber were making shots. >> on diversity. >> exactly. it's just -- it kind of begs the question of credibility from the attackers. >> uh-huh. >> do you think it's a fair point? >> well, i think that -- i mean this may say a lot about the republican party but not as much as -- not as much as expected from the republican party when it comes to diversity. i think that hailee barber has accould the republican party is terrible b it comes to reaching out to women of color. it says a lot. president obama, himself, has held up the diversity of has cabinet as something sort of extraordinary. when you do that, you are setting you

are predicting gun control will be the big divisive issue in four years. despite the uproar over last month's massacre in newtown connecticut, many are throwing any chance of new firearm restrictions out the window, saying obama's proposals will not even make it to a vote on the house floor. that will leave it largely up to the states. we've already seen new york pass the nation's tightest gun control legislation. next up could be maryland where governor martin o'malley will introduce his own proposals this week. both states are home to potential 2016 candidates and we could see this trend keep up for any democrat who wants to be taken seriously during the next presidential election. >>> and think progress is looking into some ceos who want people to retire later. they're thinking of raising the retirement age up to 70 saying social security is no longer affordable. as think progress notes that's not the case. the program can pay full benefits for decades into the future and with a couple of very small changes, it could extend the solvency for the next 75 years. we'll be right back. show, t

in the military but why did it take you two years? yeah, you have launched a clean-energy revolution and doubled a bill but they don't understand that change that doesn't pass congress doesn't make change. and obama never presented himself as a classic paio liberal. and then choose your own progressive liberals. if obama had only done xyand z everything would have been perfect. there were none of the spending cuts that the republicans insisted on, he raised taxes on the wealthy, but only on income over $400,000 instead of $250,000. but why didn't you deal with the debt ceiling now why didn't you just take us over the cliff and then surely the republicans would have folded. which has not necessarily been the case. which leads to the heighten the contradictions liberal. the radicals wanted nixon to will elected because that would heighten the contradiction. if we would have just gone over the cliff, it would have created this economic disaster, and then people would have seen how extreme and out of touch these republicans are. well, maybe. if only we would have m

percentpercent 30-plus years later. it's the same with the guns. to be killed with a semiautomatic in school is rare. it's still a terrible tragedy but they take it and project it. but when obama kills people with a drone, there is no crime. >> cenk: i get that. i think the drone program is hideous, and we talk about it all the time. jon stewart made a fair point. you're talking about imaginary problems like the shark problem. >> so this is what it is. their paranoid feel of a possible distopic future prevents us from addressing our actual distopic present. we cannot discuss the gung deaths that are happening every year because a few of us must remain vigilant begins the rise of a imaginary hitler. >> cenk: you're worried about the imagethe imaginary sharks. i don't want to say it in a dismissive way but you're talking about the government taking over when they haven't and we have real deaths. isn't that a fair point alex? >> no, it's not a fair point. they've taken the guns worldwide. in chicago and new york when they took the guns crime rates went up. the issue is humans at a primitive lev
